The mining industry is renowned for expanding into unknown parts of the world. The current economic climate, together with the scarcity of quality projects in countries with existing mining operations is resulting in exploration and development efforts in countries and areas that have previously been considered too risky or marginal. With more and more mining companies exploring investments in these emerging markets, your success depends on improving performance and operational efficiency, securing new supply, and complying with ever-changing regulatory, reporting and tax requirements.
